Opening Event for VOA Silicon Valley Bureau

The Silicon Valley, a leading hub for many of the world's largest high-tech corporations and thousands of startup companies, is also at the heart of America's story on entrepreneurship, high-tech innovation and scientific development. It accounts for one-third of all of the venture capital investment in the United States and attracts entrepreneurs and information technology specialists from all over the globe.

The mission of the Voice of America includes telling America's story as it models a free press and provide neutral, balanced and reliable information about the U.S. and the world.

Please join VOA Director, Amanda Bennett, VOA Deputy Director, Sandy Sugawara and VOA's Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, Michelle Quinn, as well as elected officials and entrepreneurs of the region for an engaging discussion on the challenges and opportunities the high-tech industry grapples with as it faces changing U.S. immigration policies and visa requirements.
